A classic clip showing what Vista users must deal with...

http://snipurl.com/19r0y

If they would just wisen up and get a Mac, the world would be a happier
place!

At this point, it's clear Microsoft will never catch up with OSX.

Macs are glorified Fisher-Price activity centers for adults; computers for
scaredy cats too nervous to learn how proper computers work; computers for
people who earnestly believe in feng shui.

In actually, it's the tool heavy computer users use. It's the power
house of Personal Computing, only the uneducated use Windows at this
point in the game. Unix is where all the smart people go when they want
the best, that's why OSX is the most popular Unix worldwide.

People like Bill Joy, who created Java, use Macs exclusively. Tim
Berners Lee that created the World Wide Web, another Mac only person.
Larry Ellison, CEO of the 2nd largest software firm has over 16 Macs in
daily use.

Even the Number 3 man at Microsoft, Jim Allchin recently stated:

"I'd buy a Mac if i didn't work for Microsoft"

Ouch!

Nobody in their right mind uses Windows, it's just not powerful enough
for the heavy hitters of the world. Plus Windows is too proprietary
compared to Apple's Open Standards, Open Source approach.

Someday Tom, you too will move up to a Unix based Mac.

PS:

Plus in the corporate space OSX Server can't be beat for the speed and
price. IT groups still using Windows Server have lost the game since
they can completely replace MS server products and still keep on
running. (at about 1/5th the price)

ummmm... osx is based on linux not unix. And if osx is the most popular
worldwide how come it only has 3% marketshare and in server markets probably
only about 1% if that? And I see like most Mac zealots you took Allchin's
comment out of context to make your fisher price activity centre look
better. Open Source, errrr, read apple eula's on their software and you'll
find you are not allowed to modify, reverse engineer etc just like MS
software so so much for open source. Funny about the "uneducated", overall
I'd say windows users know more about computers in general. OSX is fairly
new in the OS game and most mac users are still used to pre-osx mac OS where
they relied on apple stores to fix, install everything. Also many windows
users also use linux.

I agree with you, but OSX is based on, I believe, BSD which is more of a
UNIX flavor and is not Linux.

I stand corrected, indeed BSD is more UNIX than linux.

The message of an MS fanboy! Since you know nothing about Macs, and refuse
to use one, how do you know how bad they are?. At work, we HAVE TO use Macs
for developing in house print files for use on Xerox (unix) based printers
because Windows isn't powerful enough to handle them. Also, we use Macs to
develop media files for viewing and editing at work. Macs are much better at
media building than any Windows based PC I have ever seen.

We also HAVE TO use linux based servers for the company network, because
Windows Servers suck at isn't as powerful.

Now, for typical desktop use and everyday applications (like any office
products, creating and sharing common/typical files, etc, Windows is best at
this. I think it is time to ween yourself off the MS titty, you're too old
now...

Actually Jim didn't state that, but that's ok because Mac users can't
actually read

Perhaps if you did your research you would find out what he actually said
and how that was only part of a sentence pulled out of context

Trust me I know Jim personally and that's not his view.
